|Digital Tipping Point: Novell Chairman Jack Messman 03 - Christian Einfeldt|
This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This particular segment continues with Jack Messman picking up where he left of in the previous segment, 002, talking about Hovell's decision to buy SuSE Linux. This is a very interesting segment, and IMHO, it is the most interesting of Jack's segments up to this point in the interview. Jack says that Novel was peeved that SCO was claiming that some of its (SCO's) proprietary Unix code had sh...

|Digital Tipping Point: Maria Winslow, open source biz guru 05 - Christian Einfeldt|
This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. In this particular segment, Maria continues with her brief history of Linux and GNU.
